Overview

With the majority of Americans now attempting to eat healthier and an estimated million of them each year in the past decade adopting vegetarian or semi-vegetarian diets, The Great Life Diet is ready to enter the cultural mainstream.
At the forefront of this American revolution in eating since 1969 has been health counselor and teacher Denny Waxman, founder of the Strengthening Health Institute and author of The Great Life Diet, which distills the wisdom of his thirty-five years of experience into a clear guide to a better, healthier, longer life. Essentially, Waxman's method weds a diet of whole grains, beans, vegetables, and soups to a lifestyle that nourishes the mind and the spirit.
In seven steps, The Great Life Diet offers a balanced and orderly approach to an active, fulfilling daily life. The aim always is to strengthen health, however good or ill. Indeed, thousands of people, their ailments ranging widely from the common cold to chronic fatigue to heart disease and even to "incurable" cancers, have been helped, often dramatically, by espousing the dietary and lifestyle practices described in Waxman's instructive guide.
With sound sense and flexible principles, this diet extends to its readers a means both to better their health and to significantly enhance the joy in their daily lives.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Macrobiotics expert and health counselor Waxman (Ten Steps to Strengthening Health; The Great Life Handbook) presents a cogent seven-step guide to the dietary, lifestyle, and spiritual aspects of the macrobiotic philosophy. Waxman's straightforward and concise explanation of the basic tenets of macrobiotics is well suited to newcomers to this Eastern-influenced approach to strengthening physical and mental health. He emphasizes the value of having calm, seated meals at the same time each day and explains the dietary importance of eating grains and vegetables at each meal. Waxman also clearly addresses the lifestyle aspects of macrobiotics, which include proper forms of exercise, creating a more natural home environment, and cultivating what he calls a "spirit of health." This work is likely to appeal to open-minded readers interested in whole foods and natural living. For a more in-depth guide to macrobiotics, consider also Michio Kushi and Alex Jack's The Macrobiotic Path to Total Health. Recommended for public libraries.
